Saudi Space Commission (SSC) has collaborated with the Kingdom’s Ministry of Education to launch the ‘9 Space Trips’ summer programme. It is an initiative of the Space Generations Program organised by the SSC, aimed for students in various phases of public education in the Kingdom.
The programme aims to spread awareness about space science and its fields to satisfy the interests of the students. It also presents a number of scientific topics and experiences related to the space sector, a Saudi Press Agency (SPA) report said.
Dr Muhammad Al-Muqbil, Deputy Minister of Education for Public Education, stressed the ministry’s keenness, in line with the directive of the minister of education, to invest in students, by preparing programmes and activities to develop their skills, in order to help them qualify for future roles.
Al-Muqbil added that SSA is interested in developing the capabilities of Saudi students and developing their talents. “The Ministry of Education is keen to build bridges with the commission and invest in its programmes.”
